Language of the Robe by Robert Kapoun

Book Description

Over the many generations since Native Americans began trade with Europeans, few items have become so closely identified with the indigenous American cultures as has the American Indian trade blanket. From the history of the trade blanket to contemporary collectible blankets to designs of the major trade blanket manufacturers such as Pendleton Woolen Mills, Racine Woolen Mills, and Buell Manufacturing Company, "Language of the Robe" presents the bright colors and intricately woven patterns hallmark to American Indian trade blankets. Beautifully illustrated with over 370 photographs, this handsome volume explains how the blanket is an important acknowledgment of friendship, gratitude and respect.
